Title: Evaluation of Diving System International (DSI) KMB-28B Bandmask.
Author: Junker, DL; Mazzone, RW
Abstract: Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) evaluated the DSI EMd-28N Bandmask as requested by COMNAVSEASYSCOM Code OOC. Unmanned testing was conducted to 198 few at a temperature of 4O deg F at RMV's of 22.5 to 90 Lxmin. Manned testing was conducted in the NEDU test pool to evaluate form, fit and function. Additionally, manned dives were conducted to a depth of 190 fsw in the 0SF by divers wearing hot water Suits. Results of unmanned testing showed that the KM3-299 Bandmask has breathing performance characteristics which meet or exceed those of the MR 1 MOD 0 Bandmask. Additionally, no evidence of CO2 pocketing or retention was observed. The RMN-29B Bandmask received very favorable ratings by all divers. In addition, the KB-28B utilizes many of the same parts as the currently approved MR 21 MOD 1 diving helmet. NEDU strongly recommends that the KMB-28B be approved for Navy use.
